COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — An alcoholic beverage company plans a new $400 million dollar brewery and production facility in South Carolina, according to a news release from Gov. Henry McMaster’s office.

Mark Anthony Brewing’s project in Richland County will create 300 jobs, the release said. The facility will be in the Pineview Industrial Park in Columbia.

White Claw Hard Seltzer and Mike’s Hard Lemonade are among the products it will produce.

Construction is to start “almost immediately” on the more than 1 million square-foot (92,903-square meter) facility, which is expected to be fully operational by summer.

The project will benefit from the state’s job development credits program. And Richland County will receive more than $6 million in grants for infrastructure work and property acquisition, according to the release.
